An early settlement called Bird's Fort was established just south of the present city in 1841. A post office was founded there in 1857, but the community dissipated as settlers moved toward present-day Euless and Irving. Elisha Adam Euless, a pioneer from Tennessee, built a home and cotton gin nearby in 1881. The settlement that grew around his gin was named for him. Today, the city is a thriving community on the boundary of DFW International Airport.
Euless is known for its Arbor Daze Festival each April, which promotes and celebrates the planting of trees throughout the city. www.arbordaze.org.
